How to Make a Stone Bracelet Using Macrame & Fish Tank Stones
Hi, everyone! This week, I’m going to show you how to make a stone bracelet. It’s a macrame friendship bracelet and you already know how much I love friendship bracelets.
This DIY macrame bracelet with a stone is super simple to make and so cute. Let’s get started!
Tools and materials:
- Waxed cotton cord
- Small stones (I'm using fish tank stones)
1. Cut the cord into three strands
Cut two strands with 3.3 feet of cord and fold them in half. Then, cut another strand that’s 6.56 feet long. This is the one we’ll be using to wrap the whole bracelet.
Fold it along with the other two, leaving the excess cord to one side.
2. Knot the cords
Knot the cords together in the middle leaving a loop big enough to fit the button through.
3. Wrap the long cord around the other cords to create the bracelet
Clip the cords in place on the clipboard, then start wrapping the long cord around the other cords.
Once the bracelet reaches almost half the size of your wrist, tie the cord off.
4. Create the net
To make the net, divide the cords into pairs and make a knot on each pair close to the top.
Then, separate the cords again and take a cord on one end and tie it to another cord from the knotted pair next to it.
Then tie the remaining cord in the middle knot with a cord from the knot on the end.
Finally, take the last two cords and tie those together as well.
Watch the video from 3 minutes to see the whole process.
It will look something like this.
Repeat step four until you have enough rows of knots to fit your rock.
6. Tie off and finish wrapping the bracelet
Use the longest cord to tie all of the strands together.
Then, wrap it around until the length on this side of the bracelet matches the other side. Once it matches, tie the strand off.
7. Add a button
Add a button to the end of the bracelet and tie all of the strands around each other into one final knot.
I had to break the center part of my button to get it to fit, but if you have one that works, go ahead and use it. Cut the excess cord and your bracelet is ready!
